Really central location. The staff were helpful and friendly. Rooms were really comfortable. Breakfast was lovely, only down side was it ran out if you were not down to eat early! Cheap too -would definitely stay here again!

Our stay was made comfortable and welcoming by the front desk girl who not only helped us check in early but helped us on how to see Budapest.Even the night shift person front desk is super .
The rooms are comfortable , and the Hotel is where all the night life and good cafés and walking is a pleasure at night .Its a ten minute walk to the Danube and the walking street and that is fun.
The elevator is small and so are the bathrooms but that is nothing.Just the two girls working in the dining area are rude and not helpful but the front desk lady is fantastic so she is running around doing everything in the hotel.
Rest for the budget and breakfast is good it's a good place to stay.

The biggest asset is the location - walking distance to restaurants and even to the riverside. Rooms are clean, modern, typical for 3-4 star hotel. Affordable private parking outside (our mid- size SUV was too big for underground hotel parking). Pleasant staff, reasonable breakfast. Good free wifi. We were all given forms to complete at check-in - those were too detailed in our opinion - we have visited 7 European capitals on the same trip and this was the only place with such bureaucracy. Once I have made a remark about that to reception manager, he was not seeing any problem and said "it is a security issue". Way to much paperwork for a person on vacation, just a little hassle. Overall: nice and cost-effective hotel to stay in beautiful Budapest !

Good location, professional, kind and helpfull staff. Nice, clean, enough big room, excellent food.
We willingly back to Budapest and this hotel. It's romantic, quiet hotel, especially good for people who look for silence, relax and best point to start visiting Budapest

Friendly and helpful receptionists. Breakfasts excellent choice of cooked, cold meats, cheese, variety of breads and pastries, cereals, fruit, yoghurts to start the day in a pleasant dining area off reception. The lady dining manager does a magnificent job of keeping the food replenished. Quiet, small comfortable room and en suite, TV, tea making facility, wardrobe and room safe.The housekeeping was a great let down, probably the worst of my travels, towels not folded, mugs and glasses not washed and tea bags etc not replenished - apart from folding duvets there was little evidence of the room having been visited between morning and evening. Our friends reported the same. Come on Ambra it would not take much to up your game

Room Tip: Avoid sloping ceilings on top floor if you are tall

Stayed for 4 nights. Best way to describe is to say travelodge in budapest. Not 4 star by uk standards but clean,good size room.free safe and good bathroom.breakfast continental with decent choice and coffee all day from machine. Picked this hotel for location.10 mins to opera and metro,10 mins to main centre e.g hard rock cafe.(walkinh)It is on the street with clubs, pubs etc so can get noisy,plus spar directly across road so noise from early deliveries. If your a light sleeper you may want to pick elsewhere. Staff friendly and 24 hr reception. Quality hotel for the price with great location for our travelling needs. If your like us using hotel for sleep and base to explore from then this hotel is for you.

Its a standard 4 star hotel. All facilities in room are good. Though restaurant works only for breakfast. Its location has a lot of coffe shops etc around. SPAR just opposite for small needs.

Very good and friendly staff.
Regards to Mr. Gaboy and his collegues who helped me a lot!
